Key Accomplishments

At my last company I was an early employee (#8) and was initially responsible for website development with a high focus on scalability. When I left the company it had over 1.7 billion page views per month (more than Twitter and LinkedIn) and I had hired, managed, and built out the entire web team to 13 engineers and was responsible for architectural reviews and product road maps. I have experience in many different parts of a startup -- including full-stack web development, hiring, compensation, management, interviewing, product road mapping, architectural / security / design reviews, etc.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

When I find a project I'm passionate about it's hard for me to think about much else. I'm also a very open and honest person and I value that in a partnership. If there's something we disagree on, that should be voiced early and often. I'm also a strong believer in an iterative approach. When in doubt, try it out and be willing to pivot.

Jeffrey Ma
They're my friends
He has passion to start something on his own and has reached the point in his career where he has the necessary technical and people skills ... to do so

Navin Lal

I know Tim to be a hard-working, passionate person. He's a real hands-on guy and is not afraid to dive deep to solve a problem. He's alway ... s got new ideas and opinions about the product and has leadership experience to back up his decisions.

Bo Ghirardelli
They're my friends  •  Co-founder and CEO at Youth Business USA, social entrepreneur working on creating the 600 million new jobs by 2025 that the world needs.
Bo has the combination of empathy and tenacity that you hope to find in a co-founder, and he has the intellect to match. His goals and visio ... ns are not small, but he's got the track record to show that he can make them happen. From teaching himself graphic design to traveling across the world to make connections, he is not afraid to dive in and get his hands dirty. I want to choose "Hungry, Driven, and Tenacious" from the list above, but that would leave out all of the other qualities he embodies. Bo will do well in the FounderDating network.
